Steps to Take to Make Laundry Duty Fun
Laundry duty is one of the most dreaded duties in a house. Nobody wants to be left going through dirty laundry and putting them in the washing machines in a systematic order. Coming back to carry it all back to the rooms for arranging is also not a fun time. But there are ways you can make this necessary yet spirit-crushing chore easier on yourself.
You can start by decorating the laundry room. You can make the room more functional by seeing to it that it does not lack any of the necessary amenities you need. You should have more than one machine for those times when there is a lot of duty laundry. There also needs to be a way you sort through the dirty laundry from each room. It matters where you store all the gels, powders and pastes needed while washing. Keeping them neat and well organized makes work easy. You need also to have a drying rack made, for when it is raining outside, or for those pieces that cannot be dried in a machine. This is how you keep the laundry from cluttering the house, which discourages one from doing the laundry in the first place.
You need to invest in sweet smelling detergents. We can all look forward to fresh and sweet smelling laundry. The scents you add to the wash make this possible. You have a wide range to pick from while shopping. You only need to find those that your family likes and everyone will be happy. You can also go for the scented fabric softener that people like. You can get those for cheap. There is the option of using coupons, or hunting for sales when they come up. If you are into natural scents, you can choose the organic way, and use items such as lemon and tea tree. These have the added advantage of being antibacterial in nature. They tend to work well for washes that use low-temperature water.
Then there is the addition of a crate system. You will manage to shorten the laundry process duration. You will thus have managed to effectively sort through the laundry, as you save time. You will have all you need to be prepared when it is time to wash. Once you have finished laundering them; each person can come for their loads. You will thus not need to do the delivery for each person’s load. They will come and see which load belongs to them. Another advantage with this step is the sense of responsibility young family members get to pick.
